The Laws of England, Compiled and translated into the Māori language.
When all has been laid before the Court, the Chief Justice or other Judge, and the Jury, decide in favour of that one of the parties with whom they believe the right to lie. In Criminal cases, the Chief Justice or other Judge awards the amount of punishment to the offender. In Civil cases, the Jury, with the assistance of the Chief Justice or other Judge, declare what shall be the amount of compensation to be given by the defendant to the plaintiff. When judgment has been given requiring the defendant to compensate the plaintiff, he must do so; and if he does not pay, he may, on the application of the plaintiff, he imprisoned until the money is paid, or until the term fixed by the Law is expired.
